Beshear accepts invitation to broadcasters' debate

FRANKFORT, Ky. (AP) - Democratic Gov. Steve Beshear has agreed to a second debate with two challengers seeking his job in the Nov. 8 general election.
Beshear will appear with Republican David Williams and
independent Gatewood Galbraith on Oct. 11 at a political forum in
Richmond sponsored by the Kentucky Broadcasters Association.
With a strong lead in the polls, Beshear has been refusing most
invitations to debate his two opponents in his bid for re-election
to a second term.
So far, Beshear has appeared with Williams only at a Kentucky
Farm Bureau forum. Besides the Kentucky Broadcasters Association
event, Beshear has agreed to face Williams and Galbraith in a
Kentucky Educational Television debate that will be aired
statewide.
